VBMS Bags Another Wintershall Contract

VBMS, a strategic joint venture of VolkerWessels and Boskalis, has been awarded another contract by Wintershall Noordzee B.V.

The scope of work includes the installation, burial, survey and pull-ins of an 18.5km control umbilical which connects the Ravn platform to A6-A, located in the Danish and German sectors of the North Sea. The project will be executed in July and August 2015, using VBMS’s installation vessel Ndurance.

In August 2014, the Dutch contractor successfully completed the remote platform tie-back project – platform L8-P4 to L6-B, also for Wintershall.

VBMS CEO Arno van Poppel: “We’re very pleased to have signed another contract for Wintershall Noordzee B.V. With the L6-B project we have proven to be a reliable installation partner by offering costeffective solutions and a safe and efficient execution. Our team is eager to build further on our track record for Wintershall.”
